3 Events of unidentified aircraft activity

Looking into the eastern section of the sky near the star of Menkar and to the west of the region of Orion, me and my friend saw a bright blue flash which occurred twice with a brief 6 second pause. It did not happen again.

Then we see an airplane travel from the south in that direction but did not produce sound like a regular commercial airliner or produce little to no sound. We were both freaked out when we saw a light appear out of no where.

A UFO appears out of no where trailing the airplane very close and very quickly (again near that area in the sky maybe not Menkar but a star cluster near that star). No blipping lights, no red, no sound.

What was unusual was that as it traveled North we see the back end of the airplanes wings which had extremely bright spotlights which I have never seen before on an airplane.

Then we see another flying craft with no blipping lights, no sound travel from constellation of Orion or a bit east of it. It again travels towards the North.

Possibly fog lights on the back of the wings? I strongly believe that what we saw was a UFO sighting and activity linked to the bright blue flash.
